What makes a sewing project good for beginners?
Look for sewing projects with lots of straight lines. Straight lines are the easiest seam to sew, and it’s good for beginners to practice.
Look for sewing projects that use either quilting cotton, the best beginner sewing woven fabric, or cotton spandex jersey, the best beginner sewing knit fabric. Fleece fabric is another great fabric for beginners to work with.
Look for sewing projects that use a smaller amount of fabric since less fabric means smaller seams.
